Holiday Open House
On Tuesday, December 12th
, we celebrated the holiday season with a great
night of activities at the library. We had make-it take-it
crafts for the kids, and two
Christmas concerts: the Novack Trio
Christmas songs downstairs at 6:00, and the Prestige
, an instrumental group from Columbus, performing a
holiday concert upstairs at 7:00. Also at 7:00 there was
a special Christmas Story Time for the children, and afterward
a visit with Mrs. Claus.

Surplus Computer Hardware
We have some surplus computer hardware that we are looking at
selling. Some of the more specialised stuff (especially the
equipment) we are selling on ebay, because it would be hard
to find a local buyer. However, we might sell some of the
consumer-grade stuff (e.g., the iMac) locally. In any case,
in the photo gallery.
The halloween costume photos are finally in.
Check 'em out!
Teen Mystery Night
On October 21st
, each person took on a character,
became a suspect, and worked to solve the mystery before
someone else accused them of the crime!
See the photos in the gallery!
Book Sale a Success!
The Friends of the Library
held their fall booksale
raising some $1200. The Friends use the moneys they raise
to purchase needed equipment and materials for the library.
The Used Book Sale, typically held twice a year in the spring
and fall, is one of their larger fundraisers.
Teen End of Summer Reading Party
On August 11th
, we met on the lawn for a cook out and games,
then went indoors and tried out some
other activities, and refreshments.
Check out the photo gallery.
As you may have noticed, we've been moving some things around
on the shelves a bit, a practice we call
This is something we have to do from time to time, in order
to keep the precious little empty shelf space that we have
evenly spread out, so that there is room for new items in
all areas of the collection. Right now we're shifting the
adult non-fiction collection.

We were pleased to participate this year in the Crawford County Fair, along
with other Crawford County libraries, and

A little-known fact about our director is that he sometimes
makes balloon animals. This is the first time we've been out
to the fair in a couple of years, but we hope to be back again
Teen Trivia Challenge & Costume Contest

We had a great time at this — if you missed it, you missed out.
You may have noticed that we are having some work done on the
library roof. For your safety, the front entrance may be
roped off at times. We think this library building is worth
repairing. Please bear with us as we do what needs to be done
to ensure the long-term health of a building that is beginning
to show its age.
